BAFTA creates new Director of Awards role

BAFTA creates new Director of Awards role

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) has appointed Emma Baehr as its Director of Awards, a new role that oversees all five of BAFTA’s London-based ceremonies including November’s British Academy Children’s Awards and next February’s British Academy Film Awards. The role will be responsible for the ongoing development of BAFTA’s Awards, increasing engagement with the film, television and games industries and identifying strategic partnerships. Baehr will report directly to BAFTA’s Chief Executive, Amanda Berry.

As part of the BAFTA restructure, Jim Bradshaw, Head of Membership, also becomes Acting Head of Film with responsibility for the British Academy Film Awards and will be supported by Awards Officer Bradley Down. Baehr was previously the Acting Head of Film.

Berry said,  “The Director of Awards role is a key one for BAFTA. Emma will ensure the Awards continue to be delivered to the very highest standard, maximising the impact of the Awards on our ever-growing international audiences whilst helping to identify new business and revenue opportunities. This appointment will allow me to move away from day-to-day management of the Awards and broaden my remit across the organisation.”
